Have your people contact my people okay?! :nod: Tell them to try to hold you to a temp of 350 to 375 this time. Sorry I can't come down to help, I'm going to be out checking how thick the ice on the lakes is. Either that or doing that careening down the slopes thingy. :D

But do send me a box of those goodies. :D

Please tell me you are not going out on the lake yet.......
If that is the case maybe you can let me know how cold the water is. :help:
As far as careening down the hill, watch for frostbite. At your age circulation isn't quite as good as it used to be. :(

For sure I will send you a box of goodies! Have to save some for Santa, and maybe a couple to sweeten up the Grinch.

Thanks for the concern :roll: As far as that age thing goes, this brisk weather of late has me feeling like a spring chicken. :shock:

Do you frost the cut outs? Please do, and make sure you use REAL butter this year. :D Oh and sprinkles :D

We have peanut butter balls right now. The wife and kids have been making candy for 2 days and will not stop for about 2 weeks.

I will be making shortbread cookies, eatmore bars (hubby's favorite) and butter tarts. The neighbors will get my famous caramilk cheesecake for their "thanks for being great friends and neighbors) Christmas gift ;it is expensive to make but worth it as they love it.

Love peanut butter cookies!

I make cut out cookies every year, am filthy and exhausted when I am done and no one really eats the. So I am not doing it this year.

Martha Washingtons anyone? My mother-in-law makes the best Martha Washingtons on earth! I can eat them till I weigh 400 pounds.

How do you get cut outs to look like the cookie cutter and not like cookies on steroids?

Sugar rush! :p

Martha Washington Candy

2 (1-pound) boxes powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups flaked coconut
2 cups finely chopped pecans
1/2 block paraffin wax
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
Combine powdered sugar, butter, sweetened condensed milk, coconut and pecans together, mixing well. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Chill.
Melt chocolate chips and paraffin in double boiler. Using a wooden pick, dip candy balls into chocolate mixture and place on prepared baking sheet. Chill until chocolate is firm.
Makes about 4 dozen candies.

Cook's Note: Try toasting the coconut for additional crunch and scrumptious flavor!

Got me ~ plenty of times I wonder "Is this a bell or a Christmas tree???"

I wonder who else eats the legs off Santa first.

My favorite decorations are red hots or smashed candy canes. Anyone else remember those tiny silver or gold sprinkles that looked lke BB's? I can't find them anymore.

Anyone else make the dipped pretzels?

I didn't know what a MW was either. Thank you for the recipe site CKC! :clap:

hd ~ what is this: "famous caramilk cheesecake"? You cannot drop the word "cheesecake" without sharing your recipe!! Lets hear it!
